Catholic War Veterans of Savannah put up crosses to remember fallen military personnel

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Members of the Catholic War Veterans of Savannah gathered to put up several hundred crosses for fallen military personnel and held a dedication ceremony.

The crosses were set up at the Catholic cemetery on Wheaton Street to remember Catholic war veterans that have died.

The group started several years ago with 25 crosses, and this year they set up more than 200 crosses.

"You and I wouldn't be free to stand here and do this if it hadn't been for these people, but I just wish there was some way that people wouldn't just slough off the sacrifices men and women have made for us in every war," said Tommy I. Brunson, past commander of the Catholic War Veterans of Savannah.
